The Tibet Fund has provided services to preserve the distinct culture and national identity of the Tibetan people. The organization offers funding for services related to health care, education, refugee rehabilitation, religious and cultural preservation, elder care, and community and economic development for more than 140,000 Tibetan refugees around the world. They organized at a time when the international community had largely forgotten about the people of Tibet, though they still remained under Chinese occupation. Over the past 30 years, the program has taken a central role in assisting refugees living in India, Nepal, and Bhutan, and has also helped support orphans and others who are marginalized in Tibet. The aim of the Tibetan Fund is to promote self-reliance and help sustain cohesiveness of this community.
